“Appendix” Carry: I’m not sure that appendix carry qualifies as a “trend,” but I’m seeing it a lot more of it than I did a decade ago.
With the whole idea of concealed carry still a “novelty” in many parts of the country, and so much of it being poorly and unsafely displayed in Hollywood productions, more than a few students of our Art are currently experimenting with the Appendix Carry practice.
Simultaneously, holster-makers make available a never-ending variety of gun holster wares designed to accommodate #ad appendix carry.
I’m not a big fan of appendix carry. With my build, it’s not concealable unless I wear the gun real low with my belt pulled in way too tight, which makes it too uncomfortable and the gun too difficult to draw.
Then there’s the fact that it is dangerous for the reasons outlined in the article.
When I first started carrying a gun (illegally) in the State of California, I did it with appendix carry, but it didn’t take long to switch it to the way I carry now at the 5 o’clock spot over my right hip pocket for the most part.
I found that with my build, it was much more concealable with the right holster (key words there), quicker to draw and a hell of a lot more comfortable – while I want to know the gun is there, I damned sure don’t want to be reminded of that fact by it pinching or jabbing me.
